    I ordered two 16GB Nano's (Orange and Green) not long after the store went up. Just got my shipment notification.

    I did the free shipping, but it is showing as overnight, scheduled for delivery tomorrow.

    Anyone else have their's on the way? :apple:

    I was so debating about ordering one or trying to find it in a store.
    If I knew It woulda came tomorrow I would have ordered it ASAP.
    I did just get a email from Apple tho saying they will be in stores tomorrow.
    Either way I cant wait to get my hands on one!

    It doesn't look like it is in FedEx's hands yet. So it is possible it won't be here tomorrow. I am looking forward to getting mine as well though!

    Are you going for the 16GB?

    I ordered my green 16GB first thing when the store went up (not sure im going to like the green after the pictures look so much darker than the ones posted during the keynote) and I too have had the order confirmation but no sign that its made its way to the courier yet. I am in the UK however, so I half expected this to take longer than I would have hoped.

    My guess is that it will come on Friday, hope this is the case soon as im away all weekend!

    Has anybody else's arrived at the couriers yet? :apple:

    Bah! I paid $16 for overnight, ordered 11:13 AM PDT and it still says prepared to ship. Maybe Apple's system isn't updated, but looks like I'll get it Friday. If people are getting today with standard free shipping, that sucks.

    dagomike:

    I did standard shipping and mine is going to be delivered today. Within the next hour and a half in fact. Mine came from TN, I am in the midwest. But they still used Standard Overnight.

    See attached image. I was going to go with Overnight, but I am glad I didn't. $16 saved.

    Alex: I'll snap some of shots of the green in a few hours. Keep a look out.

    That would be great, cheers.
    First impressions of the color, is it a light green like lime (I really liked the previous generations lime green).

    Looking forward to the photos :)

    The reason I got standard shipping is for the package to get here later on in the day. I can actually sign for it then (out of work). So they kind of screwed me over by sending it overnight.

    Now I have to wait another day (i still wont be home). Or will they try to deliver it later on today? Anyone know? Either way I'll call them when I get out of work.

    Can you upload an uncompressed video file? I want to see what the quality is like (before the youtube compression). I'm pretty sure I'm not going to be getting mine today sadly.

    If not it's cool. Hopefully I'll get mine tomorrow.

    The blue one looks sick. Damn so many colors to choose from. I like blue, gray, and black.

    Mine just came in with pics!

    Unfortunetly there isn't much available light in place this time of day. I will get some better shots when can get a nice surface with some light. Here are a few though.

    The orange one looks pretty sick. I might have to pick up one of these since I'm not going to buy a touch.

    Got to say that whilst I think the updates make the new nano a pretty sweet little ipod.
    I visually prefer the colors and dimensions of the former generation. (Looking at the photos)

    The "black" is super sick looking! I wouldnt really call it black tho.. You have to see it in person to see what I'm talking about. The top where the hold switch is and the bottom where the headphones go, now thats BLACK
    The "black" nano can look purple in some light, grey in others... It's a really weird color but I most definitely like it!:D

    no stills.. just video.
    Works out perfect for me tho cause I have a iPhone 3G (no video camera)
    and I dont use the iPhone for an iPod.
    Therefor I will always have the nano and iPhone with me. (having a video and still camera at all times)

    I ike the orange also but my brother has an orange 4th gen ano so I dont want the same color as him. I like the colors but I get sick of them after awhile thats why I think Ill stick with "classic" black this time.
